  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 stick butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour or 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray or butter


  1. Whisk eggs, buttermilk and melted butter in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, stir dry ingredients together, then add to egg mixture and whisk just until smooth.
  3. Heat a waffle iron and butter lightly or spray with nonstick spray (even nonstick waffle irons require this step). Ladle batter onto iron (about 1/4 cup for an 8-inch round iron), close, and cook just until light golden brown.
  4. Serve immediately.

Yield: 3 Belgian waffles or 8 regular waffles
